Arizona’s paranoid racist teabagger trolls will usually only crawl out of their fallout shelters on the rumor of a good illegal alien desert hunt, but a cool murder weapon giveaway always comes in a close second. The Pima County GOP knows this about their insane constituents, so they are selling raffle tickets to win a Glock pistol to anyone who donates $10 or more to their campaign war chest in memory of the Gabby Giffords shooting in their district that made Glock pistols so popular with fearful teabagger assholes right after the massacre. Never forget, Arizona!
From the HuffPo:
On August 26 the Pima County Republican Party sent out its regular online newsletter, e-Tracks. It contained your standard newsletterisms – an intro from the chairman, a description of local candidates, a calendar of upcoming events, and so on. But this particular issue also featured an eye-catching giveaway to raise money for GOTV (Get Out the Vote) efforts.
For just $10, readers can purchase a raffle ticket (out of 125 offered) for a chance to win a brand new handgun. Not just any handgun, but a Glock 23.
Arizona Republicans surely know just how effective this particular brand of gun can be. After all, it was only eight months ago that Jared Lee Loughner used a Glock 19 in Tucson – the seat of Pima County – to shoot Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in the head.
Maybe a Glock pistol would even make a good campaign logo when the Arizona GOP finally runs a candidate against Giffords in 2012? [HuffPo]
